Feb 14, Colombo: Chairman of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE), MP Sunil Handunneththi has said that the reports issued by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka on the bond’s issuance concern consists of five Forensic Audit reports and approximately a 10,000 paged annexure.
Cope Chairman has expressed concern that since the Forensic Audit report is so large, it will not be easy for the lawmakers to get a comprehensive understanding of the issue before the Adjournment Debate scheduled for the 18th and 19th of this month.
Since the forensic audit was carried out on the recommendation of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry and the COPE Committee, which investigated the bond issue, Handunneththi said that the COPE could discuss the matter and prepare a summary.
The COPE Chair said that the Committee on Public Finance headed by MP M.A. Sumanthiran is currently discussing the matter.
